International Alert has been working for 30 years with people directly affected by conflict to find peaceful solutions.

We believe in a world where people resolve their differences without violence and can build a more peaceful future for their families and communities.

We build a more peaceful world by collaborating with people from across divides to resolve the root causes of conflict, because everyone can play a part in building peace, every day.

We work alongside local communities, partners, businesses and policy-makers to turn our in-depth research and analysis into practical solutions and action on the ground.

And we bring together people from the grassroots to the policy level to inspire and amplify the voice of peace, because it is only together that we can achieve change.
